Benaroya Pictures has come on board to produce and finance, with Olivier Assayas directing.
International Film Trust, which was co-founded by Benaroya, will be handling foreign sales of the title heading into the summer and the Toronto Film Festival, under the helm of IFT President Christian De Gallegos.
CAA, which arranged financing, will represent domestic rights along with WME.
Assayas directed English-language drama "Clouds of Sils Maria," which played in competition in Cannes. The film stars Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart and Chloe Grace Moretz and was produced by Gillibert's GC Cinema.
Pattinson stars with Nicole Kidman, James Franco and Damian Lewis in Werner Herzog's "Queen of the Desert," produced by Benaroya.
